Found some quick and somewhat unsatisfactory life drawing sketches from classes I attended last year and rather than throw them out, challenged myself to paint one up.

Couldn't remember if this particular models eyes were brown or not, but she had a pale complextion, short blond hair and a star tattoo on her neck.... no arm tattoos though and they did not grow out her shoulder, but you cannot expect me to play it totally straight even on a technical exercise like this one.:D

Sketches 10-20 minutes red pencil on paper in class... painting in photoshop much later :D

holy shit. thats beastly for 10 min sketching. how do you start up? seems kinda impossible to me to get these lines so easily done.i go to a life drawing class, but hours and hours of working on my lines dont do nothing for me.

I used to sketch people I saw on the train, in meetings or anywhere I went. I did this a lot and it really helped me to speed up my initial 'capture' of someone as people tend to move around a lot. I'm not as fast at it as I was then just from lack of practice, but still pretty quick, which gives me more time for all that sketchy lines and shading stuff :D

sounds like good strategy. i always feel so fucking rude and cant concentrate on staring at people because i would hate somebody drawing me. and it seems that learning to be rude is not that easy. im gonna teach my children to stare at people like theres no tomorrow thats for sure. did you ever check out kimon nicolaides by the way?

Now that i have a 5 year old, I need new words to describe certain feelings... When i saw this just now, my mind shut off, my eyes just stared at the beauty of your work and in the back of my head came the loving expletive "flumox"... this is flomuxing brilliant.

Lol! Big fan of the word 'flummox' - always found it rather handy to know and it rolls of the tongue quite nicely.
Appreciate you checking out my work as always, and of course, your use of the word flummox!

I like the tone you get out of your sepia pencil. What is it?

Its a coloured pencil from I picked up from a local store which I though would be fun to try sketching with.

I'm amazed at how realistic the shading on the skin is. The shadows fall PERFECTLY, so that her breasts really look tangible, and the little folds in the skin look so natural. Fantastic job!

Thanks Carl! Been ages since I did a bit of life drawing, so I was pretty rusty. The model had a fascinating face and ended up drawing a few quick 'portraits' in that class.

Thanks. I know practically nothing about live streaming, but it sounds like extra work and just dont have time for anything extra at the moment. Okay, maybe cheese. Pizzas are always better with extra cheese.
